There are basically two seasons which affect the western Caribbean where Cartagena geographically stands. From May to the end of November we have the wet or rainy season with an internal July – august of dryness and northerly winds.
The rest of time it’s quite calm with winds from the south and west sporadically blowing rain to our area with higher wane movement. Northerly trade winds begin late November gearing the sea upwards; the strength varies depending on the moon phase.
Temperatures during the day in Cartagena are always around the high 80ºF. Humidity is high during the rainy season. During the dry season which is winter in the northern hemisphere, temperatures at night are quite comfortable to be on your boat or to be around the city.
Because of geographic location we are in a hurricane safe area. Some tropical storms due occur during the rainy season which bringi strong gusts of winds for short periods. Other than that, downpours of rain are short and clear up promptly.
